but Spring is still in the air
We have had such a busy few months, but we are so excited about the work God is doing here in Ukraine, in our city, in our ministry and in us. As you can see from the picture above, our kids are now all so tall, beautiful, handsome and full of life. We are grateful for the blessing each of our kids are in our lives!
House Fire Victims
Alona and Igor’s new home!
We apologize it’s taken so long to write an update regarding this sweet family of 7 who lost their home and all their belongings to a fire this past month. We were busy getting them in their new home and getting them some beds, food and other necessary things to get them back up and running. It was quite the excursion to get to their new home, but they went from living in two small rooms, to now having much more property and 4 large rooms!
After much conversation with them and finding out exactly what their needs are we were able to help them with giving them some extra beds that we had and the plan is to help them renovate their home on the inside and install an indoor kitchen and bathroom along with running water into their home. We are so thankful for everyone who has help, this will be a long process but we will be taking pictures along the way and updating everyone on the status of the renovations and their family.
We brought them a refrigerator, they haven’t had one in a year! We also took them several beds, new sheets, blankets, towels and pillows!
The Vinnytsa houses are moving right along and we should be finished by the end of June and will be hosting our first team on June 29th for a couple of weeks! Thank you for all your support and prayers, we are so excited about what God is doing! We would appreciate your prayers as we still need more finances to finish the houses. Some were a bit unexpected like running city sewer and water, a front gate and insulting the attic.
